Quadrupel is La Trappe’s heaviest ale with a stunning amber colour. Its warm and intense flavour is rich and finely balanced. Malty sweet, slightly burnt, and pleasantly bitter with a sweet aftertaste. Quadrupel continues to ferment after bottling and offers aromas of banana, almond, vanilla and others.

Aroma is dark fruits, belgian sugar candy, biscuit, vanilla, raisins and rich malts. Taste is a great collection of fruits like plum, raisin, dark cherry and apple. Very nice and chewy mouthfeel. Transitions into a very pale but well placed bitterness. Appearance is a medium dark cloudy amber with a medium pearl head that retains well.

barbillon (50) - Pesaro, ITALY - JAN 15, 2015
Quadrupel facile da bersi, di colore ambrato torbido. Al naso salgono aromi floreali e frutta candita. Al palato appare subito dolce quasi a ricordarmi una Kwak....ma di un dolce che a fine bottiglia non cambia. dove sono i lieviti? in generale buona bevuta.

Malty, yeasty, boozy, dried fruits. Copper colour, off-white head, lacing. Alcohol, malty, big sweetness, bit one-dimensional. Big body, soft carbonation, anonymous finish. Ok.

Pours deep mahogany with a small frothy head. Aroma is a classical belgian bouquet with a reasonable level of intensity: light caramel, peach, raisins, banana and cloves, dried fruits and a hint of noble alcohol. Taste is based on the same notes as the aroma, the beer is rather smooth and warming, alcohol is present but in a good way. Balance is the key here, makes the beer extremely drinkable.

Vighals (1540) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2015
Gylden brun litt tåkete med høyt beige skum. Karamell, kandissukker og røde bær. Fyldig, søt karamell, frukter og alkoholsødme i smak. Medium + kullsyre.

Very fine beer sugary and sweet no bitterness but a little too simple for me lack of authenticity.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2015 Butelka. Bardzo bujna, drobnopecherzykowa, biala piana, opadajaca dosc powoli do obraczki, troche zostajaca na szkle. Przejrzyste, opalizujace, o barwie cieplego bursztynu, miodu, dosc jasnej jak na styl. W aromacie troche alkoholu, duzo owocow dosc zroznicowanych, zarowno suszonych jak i swiezych (banany, sliwki, wisnie, winogrona, rodzynki, brzoskwinie), rowniez slod, rowniez drozdze - w aromacie troche jak dubel tylko hmmm... szlachetniej? ;) W smaku rowniez duzo owocowosci nieco kwaskowatej (zestaw analogiczny do tego w aromacie) slodowosci, drozdzowosci, troche karmelu, troche miodu. goryczka niska. slodki. w ustach niczym szampan (to poniekad tez kwestia charakteru wysycenia, dosc wysokiego zreszta), tyle ze calkiem pelen, tresciwy. Ma sie ochote na kolejny lyk. alkohol - wszak nie niski - w smaku genalnie ukryty. Wysoka klasa, do ktorej niewatpliwie warto wracac. 7/4/9/5/17 -> 4.2

Update 12.01.2015 - Butelka, warka do 09-2017. Jeszcze intensywniejsza owocowosc, nieco bardziej slodka. Co w efekcie poprawia odbior calosci. Jestem fanem. 8/4/9/5/18 -> 4.4

Update 22.01.2015 - Butelka, warka do 02-2016. Mam wrazenie wyzszego wysycenia i slodyczy - nie wiem, czy to kwestia dluzszego lezakowania w butelce czy po prostu warki - 8/4/9/5/18 -> 4.4
